Tiny Tiger Beginners
Developing focus and self-control is paramount for young children. Tiny-Tigers practice taking directions from their adult instructors, and concentrating on simple tasks for progressively greater lengths of time. This class will reinforce life-skills such as listening, working cooperatively, and picking up after ourselves. Entry level Taekwondo routines are broken down into ‘bite-sized’ increments so that students may progress steadily and confidently! Coaches keep all techniques and skills limited to simple gross-motor movements designed to improve attributes such as balance and coordination. Kids will quickly discover the joy of training through super fun play-based learning in every lesson!
Elementary Taekwondo Techniques (based upon universal principles of motion) are used as a vehicle in which to impart our core values to new students. This means that ideas such as teamwork, integrity, humility, and respect of self and others are intrinsically woven into our process. Taekwondo training is just as much mental as it is physical. Students will gain confidence and self-esteem through their new found abilities, acclimate to the structure of class, and be encouraged to express themselves in a fun and exciting fashion! This class will teach them the positive and respectful attitude, self-discipline, and power of focus needed to succeed.
